The V.A.C. ® Via™ Therapy System is an integrated wound management system for use in acute,
extended and home care settings. When used on open wounds, it is intended to create an environment
that promotes wound healing by secondary or tertiary (delayed primary) intention by preparing the wound
bed for closure, reducing edema, promoting granulation tissue formation and perfusion, and by removing
exudates and infectious material. Open wound types include: chronic, acute, traumatic, subacute and
dehisced wounds, partial-thickness burns, ulcers (such as diabetic, pressure, or venous insufficiency),
flaps and grafts.
When used on closed surgical incisions, it is intended to manage the environment of surgical incisions that
continue to drain following sutured or stapled closure by maintaining a closed environment and removing
exudates via the application of negative pressure wound therapy.
